No signal while "Roaming Only"

I'm using the stock sprint Rom, with the SprintCleanup cab, and I just found out that the "Roaming Only" Regedit is included. However, when I select the Romaing Only option, I get no signal what so ever. I left it in roaming and drove across town and could not pick up a signal, Im pretty sure there are other networks in my area. Anyone had this problem? Thanks

I use the Roaming only option and it works great. Check your PRL you may need to update.

Re: No signal while "Roaming Only"

I too have no problems with the Roam Only option... I would do what vesty said and update your PRL. Nine times out of ten this is the issue. Especially when it is a farily new phone. (Only a few days out of the box.)

Are you literally getting no bars or isn't it letting you make phone calls?

Go to settings, comm manager, settings, select phone, sevices tab, roaming and make sure that all your settings allow for roaming and no call guard.

As far as your plan allowing it? I'm not sure but I'm pretty sure regardless it will let you make calls, they will just charge you roaming charges.

Do some searching around about adding roaming only to the mogul. If my mind serves me right there were some issues like your explaining when the reg edit first came out for the mogul after they disabled the function.

BTW your PRL I believe should be 60650. I've had to call and ask for an HRL update sometimes when I can't make calls while roaming.

You shouldn't be having this problem, i recommend using this registry edit to get roaming.

Roam Only
